The Dangerous Book for Middle-Aged Men: The Manual for Managing Mid-Life Crisis Synopsis

So your husband/boyfriend/partner (delete as necessary) has just tipped over 35/40/45/50 (delete as necessary) and you can see that he's not quite as keen on Emmerdale as he once was. He's started to dress with his jeans hoiked too high like his hero Jeremy Clarkson and he's bought a home gym - the one recommended by George Clooney. Then there are those Harley Davison brochures delivered in brown envelopes. And you've noticed he's started pulling in his beer gut when he's talks to his teenage secretary. And why have his grey sideburns turned that browny black that's a sure sign of hair dye and then you stumble into the bathroom in the morning and he's got his hands in a jar of your face cream. Ladies beware! That dangerous age has arrived. It's the male menopause. The mid-life crisis. The time when suddenly you find your partner has put a whole Scalextrix track in your attic without you noticing. He's bought an electric guitar and insists on playing Smoke On The Water to the cat at all hours. It that time when no matter what you say they suddenly don't mind making a fools of themselves. They come home almost every week with a new enthusiasm. Dangerous Men don't just cook - they COOK. With truffles, that cost GBP210 for one the size of a wrinkled scrotum, and have to be from the right region of France. And they must be served with a side order of blowfish, because you saw that in a James Bond DVD that came free with the Mail on Sunday .

About David Quantick

David Quantick is a BAFTA award-winning comedy writer and bestselling author of the bestselling series of Grumpy Old Men books. Dangerous Book for Middle-Aged Men is edited by the great Jon Naismith (producer of I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue and much award-winning radio and TV). Both are certainly not pushing middle-age and they are certainly not into cooking ... apart from truffles ... which are really, really expensive ... or sports cars ... and neither has a comb-over ... yet.
